Crafted by hand, in Gonaives, Haiti, Benson and his amazing team have built a piece that is simply elegant in design and perfect for everyday use.
Built with locally sourced leather, our Leather Messenger Bag is what we've been waiting for! It allows for plenty of space for a laptop, workout clothes and a great book!
The zippered pouch sewn inside the top back panel works to hold bank cards, cash, phone and small snacks! This little extra gives us the added sense of security and organization we all love!
We added a key ring securely sewn in the top interior corner. This makes it easy to snap keys in place, where they are always easy to find and reach!
The leather strap is adjustable (so it can be worn across the body or hang down from one shoulder) and finished with quality hardware. Because we know these details matter.

All of our leather- whether it is from the Noble Goat (one of the primary sources of protein in Haiti) sheep, or cow- is sourced in-country as a by-product of food. Talk about an authentic #notwasted story! Our leather products are handmade in “The Brothers” Workshop in Jubilee, a small developing community by the sea, on the outskirts of Gonaives. Founded by Benson Thermidor, this workshop employs over 20 people and is changing the story for people in this neighborhood.
About the Partner & Their Impact:
Our Impact Partner, 2nd Story Goods understands how it feels to want to buy things that are good for the people who made them, the planet, and you. This is why they have been working on the ground with their artisans in Gonaives, Haiti for 10 years, creating recycled, handcrafted goods for a livable wage. Last year, their impact enabled over 108 children to stay in school, not because of hand-outs, but through the dignity of their parents’ work with 2nd Story Goods.
